Norwegian Labour Party leader calls for more international cooperation in global health

In a recent Op-ed, Norway's Labour Party leader and former Executive Director of the World Health Organization (WHO), Jonas Gahr Støre, argues that global health challenges cannot be handled by the health system alone. He calls on the United Nations (UN), development banks, and other key institutions to put pandemic preparedness on the top of their agenda. He also argues that the WHO should be protected — but not protected from change — and urges countries to honor their global health commitments.
